Length of current 1183 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 49 minutes. It is 1 hour and 49 minutes shorter than next lunation 1184 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 5 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 58 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠142.6°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠142.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠168.3°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon after apogee

2 days after point of apogee on 2 September 2095 at 11:07 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 14 September 2095 at 22:53 in ♓ Pisces.

Moon before southern standstill

10 days after previous North standstill on 25 August 2095 at 09:24 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.058°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.188° in the next southern standstill on 9 September 2095 at 01:37 in ♑ Capricorn.
